The photography minor makes connections between disciplines and prepares students to navigate a visual culture dominated by photographic images. Students examine important personal, social, cultural and environmental issues through photography. They develop skills in critical thinking and creative problem-solving as well as technical proficiency in both traditional and digital photographic practices. Students minoring in photography are required to complete 18 credit hours of courses focused on photographic concepts and techniques, digital imaging and graphic design.
